Venue finalized for our first Ceramic Water Filter Course

Posted by Patty Osborne

We are please to announce that we have finalized the venue for our first-ever hands-on Ceramic Water Filter Course which will take place from September 24 – October 5, 2018.

The new venue is Adamah Clay Studios in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, USA. We have collaborated with Adamah in the past and have found it to be an excellent facility that is also in a beautiful rural location.

The Adamah Campus

Potters for Peace, in partnership with educational specialists at the Center for Affordable Water & Sanitation Technology (CAWST), has developed this two-week intensive course which will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to establish a water filter factory from the ground up, improve an existing factory, or prepare to work globally to improve water quality.

The course is designed  to

  • Train and support existing factory owners
  • Attract and guide new ceramic filter factory startups
  • Promote collaboration and communication between members of the filter community
  • Improve filter quality on a global scale, thus helping to reduce the global burden of diarrheal disease

By the end of the training, participants will be able to demonstrate what is involved in high quality ceramic filter production and explain what is involved in starting and maintaining a successful filter factory.

The course will be offered in English and maximum class size is 12.

Tuition includes all meals during the course, plus lodging and local transportation in Nicaragua. Participants are responsible for their own transportation (airfare) to Nicaragua.

TUITION FEE: $3500US (includes lodging, meals, and local transportation). A limited number of partial scholarships will be available.

LOCATION: Adamah Clay Studios, Dodgeville, Wisconsin, USA
